DirecTV does not like people who jailbreak their devices and locks you out of their app completely if your device is jailbroken.
When you first open the DirecTV app (version 2.3.0) you are presented with the above error message: This app is not supported on jailbroken devices. Please connect to Apple iTunes to update or restore your device.
Luckily Brandon has come to the rescue and created a patch so you can enjoy the new Directv app that supports live streaming. To patch your app you must have our Cydia repository installed.
- Open up Cydia and click on Manage at the bottom.
- Then Click Sources.
- Click Edit in the top right and then press Add in the top left.
- type http://beta.leimobile.com/repo/ and the press Add Source.
- Browse the LEiMobile repo and install dtvrunner.
- Once installed reboot and your Directv app will function normally.
Works with update Directv (v2.4.0)
Anyone know if this works with the latest 2.4.1 version of the DirecTV app? I’m not going to update until I know this will allow my DirecTV app to still function. Thanks.
LEI Mobile says
We have not tested it yet, but you could always save your old app on your computer into a separate folder and install the new one. If it doesn’t work, just put the old version back on.
I just updated to v2.4.1. The app still works.
Thanks for the update, TKane.
Fyi this fix also works on directv app version 4.2.1
doesnt work on the ipad version of the app.
Thanks. It worked great! Now we need an ipad version.
Works great on the iphone. When will there be an ipad fix? The DTV app on my ipad mini is version 1.9.9. Do we just need to wait for DTV to upgrade the ipad version? Thanks for this fix.
DTVRunner worked like a charm. The word on this app needs to be pushed out!
Well I just JB my iPad and the DTV release 2200 does not work. Does anyone know where I can DL an old version?
Thanks a million for this. Love sticking it to the man like that.
Thanks! Logged into DTV no prob 🙂
Worked on iOS 6.1 ip5
Is this safe? I’ve always been warned not to download from repos other than default ones on cydia?

It works with 2.5.1 on iPhone 5.
Yes indeed it does!
Working with latest iOS 7.04, iPhone5 and DirecTV app 3.3003
Jose S says
for real? This was the only reason I was holding off jailbreaking.
Well, it worked on both my iPad3 & iPhone5 last night. When trying later this morning, not so good. So, I’d say NOPE>
Jose S says
Thats so stupid, Directv thinks because your iDevice is Jailbroken your going to Pirate? LMAO.
You all rock! My Saviors, I simply would die without this app!
Confirmed to work on iPhone 5s, iOS v7.0.3 & current DirecTV app as of 1/13/2014. Thanks!!!
Works on iPhone 5s with IOS7 JB. Thanks! However, does not work for the iPad version of the app 🙁
However, you can run the iPhone app on the iPad and at least get that level of functionality. Better than nothing, on my iPad Air.
Just tried with DirecTV App 2.4.5 on iPad Air running iOS 7.0.4. Fail.
